It all started when I came across sites with doll patterns on the Internet. I have been creating sculpted dolls when the cabbage patch dolls were in and am always curious as to what is the ‘in’ doll right now. One doll pattern caught my attention. It was called ‘dolly hugs’. I saved the pattern to my hard drive and started to play around with it.
My first experiment – black mini doll
- I printed the design reduced to about 60% of its original size (about 5 inches).
- I used an old black T-shirt for fabric and sewed and stuffed the doll.
- It is ok, but I wasn’t impressed. So, on I went with my experimentation.
